Less is More Challenge - 3 Squares

I have been wanting to join in the challenges at Simply Less is More for the last 3 weeks but just havent got round to it until this week.  They are now onto week 4 and their challenge is  to use 3 squares.
This is quite a different card for me but I quite like the simplistic design but feel its not quite finished.  I think I should have used a lighter colour base card.   Your comments would be most welcome.

Card - Recycled Card Blank- Papermania
Embossed and Die Cut Squares done using the Die Set that came with my Cuttlebug.
Sentiment - Rub On - Papermania

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a good day.

  1. Hi Sally,
    I'm glad you managed to join us at last.
    I tend to agree about the colour of the base card... the depth of tone makes the images sink into it instead of being the focal point. I think you were right to go with something other than white, but maybe this is a tad too deep.
    Now you've dipped your toe in the water, we need to see you every week!

  2. I don't actually mind the Kraft background, but, it certainly doesn't make the squares pop. A lighter shade, or white would have been more dramatic...even black may have worked!
    I do love a bit of pink and orange!
    Thanks for joining us, do hope you want to come back again and again

  3. Love your embossed cakes...I also like kraft card....great card,


  4. I love the kraft background but agree that this card would probably be much more spectacular with a lighter base card.


  5. Well I rather like the background with these colours - it reminds me of spicy gingerbread (and that can only be a good thing!) Adding a scored line above and below the squares would 'anchor' them.

  6. love the coloured squares against the kraft card - v effective

  7. Nice card Sally, but yes I would either have a white background or lighter squares.

  8. I like it and the colours

  9. Hi Sally, sorry but not the right idea of the challenge. I am not the best cardmaker in the world but as a follower of yours I have to say that this does not meet the other challenges at all. Think white and work from that. It is such a difficult challenge to enter, but once you grasp it it is so rewarding. You can't believe that you hav made such a card and at such a little cost.
